West Virginia Teachers Get Pay Raise as Four-Day Strike Ends
BACK TO WORK
West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice announced on Tuesday that a four-day teachers' strike in the state would come to an end after a deal was reached to give teachers a 5 percent pay raise. Teachers were protesting at the state capitol while schools were closed. The strike also resulted in a 3 percent pay raise for all other state employees. Schools will re-open on Thursday after a "cooling off period" on Wednesday, a teachers' group wrote on Facebook.
